Subject RE: [jira] Commented: (JAMES-1018) James SMTP server while redirecting mail sends it to itself rather than to the destination
Date Mon, 05 Jul 2010 13:27:28 GMT
The problem is that James server doesn't recognize that next translation
will be to itself. So it sends mail to itself all allowed number of times.
And also it doesn't send the notification about undeliverable of message to
the originator.

>             Project: JAMES Server
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: SMTPServer
>    Affects Versions: 2.3.1
>         Environment: Windows XP
>            Reporter: Anastasia Tugaenko
>            Priority: Minor
>
> Under certain network and DNS configuration James SMTP server version
2.3.1 sends mail to itself rather than to the next hop. As a result, the
mail loops until resending limit is exceeded. It never gets to the
destination.
>  
> Configuration 
> The configuration file - http://www.ispras.ru/ru/james/config.xml. 
> The issue was reproduced in a virtual network with three nodes and two
domains (see http://www.ispras.ru/ru/james/virtualNet.png): 
> 1.      network vbox1.test with nodes XP11 and XP12, 
> 2.      network vbox2.test with nodes XP21 and XP22;
> 3.      nodes XP11 and XP21 are physically on the same virtual machine
where James SMTP server runs. DNS runs on the same server.
> DNS configuration used to reproduces the issue is available here -
http://www.ispras.ru/ru/james/etc.zip. 
> The issue occurs when MX record for XP21 has higher priority than that of
XP22.
> XP22               IN MX 15        XP21
> XP22               IN MX 25        XP22 
> Steps to reproduce the issue:
> 1. Turn on the virtual machines for nodes XP11/XP21, XP12, XP22. Launch
DNS and James SMTP on the XP11/XP21 virtual machine. Launch mail agents on
XP12 and XP22.
> 2. Send a mail from XP12 to XP22 (e.g. to user@XP22.vbox2.test).
>  
> Issue:
> Mail agent on XP12 sends the mail to the James SMTP server on XP11. The
James SMTP server re-sends the mail to itself  (the MX record priority is
higher than that of XP22). As a result the mail never arrives to XP22.

> The log shows that the mail gets constantly re-sent from XP11 to XP12 (the
same physical machine) and never arrives to the destination. We tried other
open-source SMTP servers in the same configuration - they do not loop and
deliver the mail to the next hop.
